Balancing capacity and maneuverability, it’s able to cover large areas that wouldn’t be possible using only a hose end, pump, or backpack sprayer. We’ve compiled this list of ways to get the most out of your lawn and garden trailer sprayer. Continue reading
175th Anniversary Brochure wins Best of Category
JEFFERSONVILLE, IN – The Printing Industry Association of the South presented their 40th Annual Graphic Awards in Destin, Florida last month, celebrating the best printed pieces from Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and West Virginia. The 175th Anniversary brochure of Brinly-Hardy Co., submitted by Merrick Printing Co., was awarded Best of Category for Catalogs of 4 or more colors.
The 18-page catalog incorporates both matte and gloss UV finishes, gold foil stamping, and an embossed 175th Anniversary logo on the cover. The piece also includes a gate-folded “timeline” insert printed on 100% post-consumer waste paper that follows the company’s history alongside snapshots of nostalgic US milestones. The contrast between the modern look of the gloss papers used for the majority of the catalog and the vintage feel of the felt paper used for the timeline insert reinforces this nostalgic theme.
Tracing its roots back to 1839, the Brinly-Hardy Company has cultivated a rich history of developing lawn and garden products that are both highly innovative and extremely durable. The business is still family-owned, led by 5th generation CEO Jane Hardy. They pride themselves on being a leading supplier of high-quality American-made lawn and garden products for both consumer and commercial users.

In our ever-continuing effort to bring you the best product support in the industry, we’ve posted another assembly video to our YouTube Channel. The newly redesigned STS-427LXH 42″ tow-behind lawn sweeper is our latest target. The STS-427LXH’s most distinguishing feature is the side-mounted Twist-Lock Height Adjustment. Differing from the previous iteration’s center-mounted height adjustment, the “427″ makes accessing the height adjustment lever easier by moving it out and away from the tow bar. The all-new Twist-Lock knob also prevents the lever from being jarred loose over bumpy terrain, securing tightly on one of the 10 settings which range from short grass to thick leaves. Effective for collecting both wet and dry grass clippings, the Brinly 42″ tow-behind lawn sweeper can be used virtually all year long. >>More Information
To celebrate this monumental anniversary, we will be hosting an event at Louisville Slugger Field tomorrow during the Bats’ home game against the Pawtucket Red Sox. The field’s location in downtown Louisville is particularly sentimental to us, having operated there for nearly 140 years before moving just across the Ohio River to our new headquarters Jeffersonville, Indiana. When Bats fans enter the stadium, they enter through the “train shed” building, once the Brinly-Hardy warehouse, which was preserved and incorporated into the design of the stadium. As such, we’re proud to call the event “Brinly-Hardy Comes Home,” representing our journey coming full circle–honoring our roots and celebrating our growth. We would like to thank you all for the parts you’ve played in our continued success, and look forward with great hope and excitement for the next 175 years.
As the snow begins to melt and the daytime temperatures creep higher and higher, we start to feel that familiar anxiousness deep inside of us. Spring is just around the corner. The feeling is so real we can almost feel the sun on our skin. We can almost hear the birds begin to sing again. We can almost see the vibrant colors of life and smell the scents of spring flowers. It’s there; we can sense it, even before it happens.
In appreciation of the coming greenup of spring, we thought it would be fitting to create a clear and concise resource covering the art and science of fertilization.
Let’s begin with the fundamentals. Continue reading
